Day 1,811 – Thankful for Learning Through Mistakes – Measure Twice, Cut Once

Valuable life lesson for this guy today!

The next step in working on Gavin’s loft was to cut out the homes for the rungs of the ladders. Pretty simple task – measure, mark, cut, and then chisel. Simple… unless I somehow use the wrong marks and cut out way more than I was supposed to.

I didn’t measure a second time to be safe. I didn’t mark the cut lines as well as I should have. I took action instead of pausing to think.

Talk about frustrating!!! All so easily preventable.

Pause, deep breaths, find a solution.

Once the fix was created I paused to consider the steps that had gotten me to this point. So much learning and growth from one simple mistake.

Thanks!!!
